National Day of the Cowboy
The National Day of the Cowboy is a day set aside by the US Senate to pay homage to our Cowboy and Western heritage, as well as to honor working Cowboys and Cowgirls, rodeo athletes, Western musicians, Cowboy poets, Western artists, ranchers, and all others who continue to contribute to the Cowboy and Western culture in America today.
Locally, this coincides with Dodge City Days and the time when we are already honoring our western heritage and all that this community was founded upon.
Dodge City has been the recipient of the National Day of the Cowboy “Cowboy Keeper Award”. Awarded to individuals, organizations, and projects that have contributed significantly to the preservation of pioneer heritage and cowboy.
Ford County and City of Dodge City Commissioners passed a Proclamation to observe this day in Dodge City on July 28th.
